Based on the cyberpunk novel by William Gibson. In a grimy future, you play Case, a cyberspace cowboy who finds himself broke in Chiba City. Find yourself a laptop and the right software for it so you can hack into databases around the city to regain your access to cyberspace. Buy and upgrade brain implant chips to augment your computer skills, and sell your body parts to afford new technologies. When you get to cyberspace, you'll take on the nasty AIs that guard the most important databases. Within all this information is the bizarre secret of this world of inbred corporations.

May be difficult for modern players to get into, but a fantastic game
I played this on my Apple II when I was just starting college back when it was released, and absolutely loved it. The graphics weren't great, even by 1988 standards, but the gameplay and story are highly immersive and the subject matter has been a favorite since I'd read the book in high school. Honestly, I still use PAX links from the game as computer names on my network, and occasionally as usernames on the Internet, so I guess it must have had a pretty big impact :)
Also, the opening MIDI was by Devo (Some Things Never Change) and is incredibly catchy.
